English Language Testing Society
PROMOTING QUALITY AND STANDARDS
In English Language Assessment Worldwide
Our goal at the English Language Testing Society (ELTS) is to become the leading advocate for excellence in English language testing. This includes large-scale proficiency testing, as well as the achievement testing happening with teachers and students in the classroom. We strive to advance, improve, promote and develop a widespread understanding of guidelines and best practices for language assessment worldwide.

What we're about
Whether you're an individual, a corporation, a classroom teacher or program administrator, as long as you routinely engage in English language testing and believe in the importance of best practice and collaboration, there is a place for you at ELTS. There are a number of challenges and choices associated with effective testing, for both teachers and large-scale test developers, and being a member involves you in a professional community of practice with like-minded individuals interested in best practices and solutions for dealing with them.
Our vision is that of an international education field that benefits from a greater understanding of best practices and principles (e.g. validity, reliability) in English language testing, whether on a large scale proficiency test or for a teacher-made test for the classroom. Promoting such assessment literacy among the membership, and in the wider English language testing field, is also a goal of the society. We aim to bring this vision to life through inter-disciplinary, worldwide collaboration.
